Terry McPhillips says he can already feel the buzz and excitement around the town, as thousands of Blackpool fans prepare to return home to Bloomfield Road next weekend.
The manager, speaking at his press conference to preview Saturday’s trip to Bristol Rovers, also revealed that the Court Appointed Receiver Paul Cooper and new Executive and Managing Director Ben Hatton had now addressed the first-team squad about the club's current situation.
“We’ve been expecting something to happen and it sort of has happened this week. We’ve met with the receivers and the new board members and they’ve met the players,” McPhillips said.
“The receiver is in to do his job and he’s very professional and good. He’s told us to just carry on doing what we do, so we have. They spoke to the players and said pretty much the same.
“There is obviously an excitement around the place. People are buzzing in the street and all gearing towards a big crowd here against Southend.”
